Casey Sherman & Dave Wedge, Authors of "Boston Strong"

Boston Strong SpeakersWith April being the first anniversary of the Boston marathon bombing, Fisher will host national bestselling author Casey Sherman and award-winning former Boston Herald lead investigative reporter Dave Wedge to discuss this momentous day in the history of Boston. Casey and Dave are currently writing “BOSTON STRONG,” a highly anticipated chronicle of the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombings and promises to provide an inside look into the tragedy and the aftermath - from the searing heat and carnage of the explosions at the finish line where ordinary spectators suddenly became first responders to the dying and seriously wounded, to the intense investigation that led to the lockdown of an entire city during one of the largest manhunts in American history.

“BOSTON STRONG” will be published by UPNE in the fall of 2014. The authors have also sold movie rights to the project to the producing team behind the Oscar winning film, "The Fighter," and Disney’s upcoming epic, "The Finest Hours." News about the "BOSTON STRONG" book/film made headlines in "Time" magazine and major media outlets around the world.
